TTC after 35

Newbie (child/previous pregnancy mentioned)

Hey there!
I'm Meg. I'm 35.5 years old and hubs and I are trying for #2. Our son is 2.5 years old. I waited until he was older to try again because I wanted to soak up as much toddler time before a new baby arrived.

I'm a planner and can be a bit impatient. It was very easy to conceive DS at 32 - first try. Our first cycle trying this time was a bust and I'm beating myself up and of course worrying about being too old now. (I don't think 35 is old at all, just seems that's the scary age when fertility drops) We worked hard last cycle if ya know what I mean. So now I'm paranoid. 

I know there are others that have been trying much longer. I'm not usually whiney- just ready to get this party started :)

I'm looking forward to meeting others in my boat to share and celebrate with ❤

  • Welcome! I had my first easily at 36 and trying for #2 now at 39 -- not so easily. I hope your stay is short. You are young!

    I totally get it because I’m a planner too. This is one area of our lives where we can’t plan! It’s not like one day your fertility drops, it is gradual. Best of luck!
